Putting an edge to the traditional cheongsam, this Asian-inspired jumpsuit comes with the option of shortening the length to turn it into a fun playsuit with shorts or elongating the hem to pair it with beautiful heels or trainers. This customized, figure-flattering silhouette features an elegant cut-out back detail, emphasized by contrast binding. Mandarin collars, sleeves and curved front feature highlighted and wrapped by the bias detail. Did we mention side pockets too?
